That's My Life (My Love And My Home)
|"That's My Life (My Love And My Home)"|
|Single by Alfred Lennon|
|Released||31 December 1965|
|Writer(s)||Freddie Lennon, Tony Cartwright|
Tony Cartwright, co-author of the song, began writing the song in inspiration from Lennon's stories that he told. When released, the song saw commercial success, with Morris Levy of Roulette Records requesting Cartwright to bring Lennon to the United States. However, the song suddenly disappeared from the charts, an action suspected by Cartwright to be executed by his son, John Lennon.
The record vanished from the charts. In Europe and the U.S., it was pulled. Only a very few music business figures had the power to do that, and I had my suspicions about who was behind it. Others accused Brian Epstein, but Eppy was my friend, and I knew he wouldn’t sabotage my record — unless John told him to do it. Why would John wreck his own father’s career? Sheer jealousy and insecurity are the only motives I can guess at. We drove to Weybridge to confront John, but he slammed the door in our faces.—Tony Cartwright, Daily Mail
